Fixing the connecting rods
I shortened the overlong pins with wire clippers, then with a sheet of slitted card over the rod I fixed the nuts with tiny blobs of superglue gel. I thought that I might have to remove the rods sometime in the future, and superglue could be dissolved without damaging anything else here.
The nuts are much thicker than the prototype, and it was only after I'd fitted them all that I realised how clumsy they look.
Perhaps I could find something more subtle sometime.
